    3. I am a new list member from the USA. My great grandmother's brother left County Carlow ireland in the late 1880's and settled in Australia. This list may or may not be what I need to I joined a few to see what response I get. His name was Nicholas King, born 27 Jun 1865 in Borris, Co Carlow, Ireland. He arrived in May 1885 in Sydney and married Mary Jane Patterson in 1888 in Hawkesdale, Victoria, Australia. They had 11 children, as far as I can tell, the oldest being born in Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. His remaining children were born and grew up in Lake Bolac, Victoria, Australia. My goal is to learn about the Irish in Australia in the areas where he lived. My great grandmother left County Carlow and went with her sister to New York City so I am familiar with New York City and irish immigrants. His wife, Mary Jane Patterson I believe, was not irish so that perhaps he did not live with or around other Irish immigrants. I hope to figure that out. My goal is to try to navigate Australian genealogical resources and my first impression is that they are less abundant than what I am used to in US records. I am hoping that my impression is incorrect and I figure out how to find more records than I have found so far. I do know when and where Nicholas died. I even found, eventually the article about his sad passing. I hope to eventually find others researching he and his descendants. I was fortunate to find a few cousins through DNA. That is one thing that has sparked my renewed interest in building a better tree of his descendants. It is finding those born or living past 1920 where the challenge is. I will aso post this to Australian lists to find a newspaper resource similar to newspapers.com in the US. I will sign off for now and if you made it to the end of this, thanks for reading.

    3. Hello Gail, I have read your request and had a look on ancestry.com.au where there is a tree owned by Suzanon who has a lot of detail however there are no notes or stories. Do you have access to Ancestry, if not let me know and I could send a PM to the tree owner and ask her to contact you. Also, just a thought but there is a site Trove digitized Newspapers which may give you some story on Nicholas- worth a try.

    3. Re Nicholas King, Trove is an Australia wide newspaper record available for free Nicholas King had several entries in The Argus Melbourne, Victoria, Australia Monday 1 January 1912. Nicholas King, labourer of Lake Bolac, in a fit of drunken temper, attacked his daughter (Daisy) with a tomahawk and then committed suicide. There are several reports as this is sensational news. Apparently he thought he had killed his daughter and hung himself with a wire. His youngest child was born in 1911.
